The edited register is available for general sale. The edited register leaves out the names and addresses of people who have asked them to be left out of that version of the register. The edited register can be bought by anyone who asks for a copy and they may use it for any purpose.
The Edited register is supplied in data format and if you want to buy a copy phone 01283 508376 to find out more details.
The full register lists everyone who is entitled to vote. Only certain people and organisations can have copies of the full register, and they can only use it for specified purposes; these include electoral purposes, preventing and detective crime, and checking your identity when you have applied for credit. The law says who can have a copy of the full register and what they can use it for. It is a criminal offence for them to pass it on to anyone else or to use if for any other purpose.
